Metropolitan is governed by a 38-member Board of Directors, representing each of the district's 26 member agencies. Each member agency is represented by one or more directors based on the assessed property valuation of its jurisdiction. The board is responsible for establishing and administering Metropolitan's policies and upholding the articles in the MWD Act.
Metropolitan's Board of Directors typically meets on the second Tuesday of each month, with committee meetings occurring on the Monday preceding the board meeting and the second and fourth Tuesday of the month.
Standing committees of the board include: Executive; Finance and Insurance; Water Planning and Stewardship; Engineering and Operations; Organization, Personnel and Technology; Legal and Claims; Real Property and Asset Management; and Communications and Legislation. In addition, the Board has five special committees: Agriculture and Industry Relations; Audit and Ethics; Conservation and Local Resources; Integrated Resources Planning; and Special Committee on Bay-Delta.
